EAC / Study in the US / Financial Aid / Program Announcements / April 2002

ATP Small Grants for Alumni of ECA Programs, January 2002-January 2003.

Project Harmony and the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State (ECA) are pleased to announce Internet Access and Training Program (IATP) grants for alumni of exchange programs sponsored by the ECA.

Beginning in January 2002, the IATP will award organizations grants of up to $5,000 for projects created and directed by alumni to develop and enhance the use of the Russian-language Internet in local communities. Grants will support training courses that strengthen and build online communities, as well as allow people to present valuable information online about their local communities. Grants may fund the creation of websites, but websites themselves should not constitute the sole result of a project. Priority will be given to projects that emphasize Internet education and training.

Project Harmony will distribute grants evenly throughout all regions of Russia. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until July 2002. Alumni are encouraged to visit the IATP site at for detailed instructions and downloadable materials related to the application process.

Prize Competition for Alumni of ECA Programs.
The Prize Competition allows alumni of exchange programs sponsored by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) of the U.S. Department of State to share their "success stories" online.

In cooperation with ECA and the Public Affairs Section at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow (PAS), Project Harmony will once a month select the best example of alumni work, having significant social impact in the local community.

Winners receive a grant in the sum of 1500 rubles worth of Internet books and merchandise through the online bookstore

National Endownment for Democracy Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellows Program.

The National Endowment for Democracy is pleased to announce the establishment of the Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellows Program to enable democracy activists, practitioners, scholars, and journalists from around the world to deepen their understanding of and enhance their ability to promote democracy. The Endowment plans to host its first cohort of fellows in Fall 2001. Reagan-Fascell Fellows are in residence at the International Forum for Democratic Studies, located in Washington, DC.

The International Forum hosts 12-15 fellows per year for three to ten months each. Each fellow receives a monthly stipend for living expenses plus health insurance and reimbursement for travel to and from Washington, D.C. Stipend levels range from a minimum of $3500/month to a maximum of $7500/month, taking into account the fellow's previous annual income, level of experience, and the cost of living in Washington, D.C. Limited funds are available for travel in the United States. Reagan-Fascell Fellows are also provided with an office, computer, and telephone; access to library services, fax and copy machines, and the Internet; and an opportunity to interact with other scholars and democratic activists from various regions of the world.

Applicants for Reagan-Fascell fellowships must choose between two tracks: a practitioner track (typically three to five months) to improve strategies and techniques for building democracy and to exchange information with counterparts in the United States; and a research and writing track (typically five to ten months) to conduct original research for publication.

Eligibility: The Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellows Program is intended primarily to support practitioners and scholars from new and aspiring democracies. Distinguished scholars from the U.S. and other established democracies are also eligible to apply. Practitioners are expected to have substantial experience working to promote democracy. Applicants who will focus on research and writing are expected to have a Ph.D. or, for non-academics, to have published in an area of expertise. The program is not designed to support students working toward a degree.

Application: Applications should be sent by air mail and, if possible by e-mail, to the address below and should consist of the following materials:

  • Eight copies of a 5-10 page description of the proposed project, including an indication of the proposed track to be pursued while in DC.

    Those choosing the practitioner track should:
    • describe the work that they have been doing to advance democracy;
    • explain what they hope to accomplish through the fellowship, identifying a feasible fellowship project that takes into account the specific resources that they would draw on and the activities they would undertake;
    • provide a preliminary outline of the fellowship product (short article, policy memorandum, etc.); and
    • discuss how the fellowship will strengthen their ability to conduct their work and contribute to the more effective promotion of democracy in their country or region.

    Those choosing the research and writing track should:
    • discuss how their project will advance public understanding of the theory or practice of democracy;
    • briefly describe how the proposed research relates to or extends existing literature on the subject;
    • indicate how a fellowship at the International Forum in Washington, D.C., will facilitate this research; and 4) provide a preliminary description of the proposed written product (article, monograph, or book).

  • Eight copies of a detailed CV or resume

  • An indication of the preferred starting date and desired duration of fellowship

  • Three letters of reference

Applications should be sent by airmail and e-mail (as MS Word attachments) to:

Kurt Schork Awards In International Journalism.

The Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism is pleased to announce the Kurt Schork Awards in International Journalism. Beginning in 2002, two $10,000 prizes will be awarded, one to a local reporter in a developing country or nation in transition, and the other to a freelance journalist covering international news, to recognize and reward exceptional news reporting. It will recognize independent and professional reporting that sheds new light on controversial issues.

The stories can focus on conflict, human-rights concerns, cross-border issues, or any other issue of controversy in a particular country or region.

Underwritten by the Kurt Schork Memorial Fund and Reuters, and administered by the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, the prizes were created to honor Kurt Schork, an American freelance journalist who was killed in a military ambush while on assignment for Reuters on May 24, 2000, in Sierra Leone.


Local Journalist: Print journalists employed by a local news outlet and residing in a developing country or nation in transition whose work has been published in a local publication are eligible. Although individual journalists are the primary focus, submissions from a team of journalists will also be considered. Local journalist entry form is available.

Freelance Journalist: Freelance print journalists and those contracted by news organizations are eligible. A freelance journalist is an individual who is not employed by a news organization. They are self-employed, providing services, either on the basis of time or on the production of editorial materials as defined by individual contractual arrangements, and earn the majority of their income from journalistic activity. Freelance entry form is available.

Applicants will be asked to submit a body of work (up to three articles) that demonstrates professionalism, meets international journalistic standards, and gives evidence that courage and determination played a role in generating the articles. Winners will be chosen by an international panel of five judges. Winners will be announced in August and honored at an awards ceremony held in New York in October.

Articles must have appeared in print between May 1, 2001 and April 30, 2002. Each applicant must submit six (6) copies of the following:
• The original articles, accompanied by English translations if necessary. E-mail submissions will not be accepted.
